Zoom Joins Centrify Alliance Partner Program to Bring Centrify Web and Mobile Single Sign-On to Zoom’s Leading Video Conferencing Service
 


SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 11, 2013 -- Centrify Corporation, the leader in Unified Identity Services across data center, cloud and mobile, today announced a partnership with Zoom Video Communications, the cloud meeting company, to bring enhanced security with Active Directory- and cloud-based access controls and Single Sign-on (SSO) to customers, enabling them to securely share and collaborate while meeting enterprise compliance requirements.

Zoom has pioneered the category of cloud meetings that unify cloud video conferencing, simple web meetings and mobile collaboration into one easy-to-use platform. Today Zoom has more than 5,000 businesses and 6 million participants from nearly every country around the world that use its secure meeting platform for video, audio and screen sharing. Its dramatic growth has been driven by increased demand among businesses for an affordable, high-quality video meeting experience.

By joining the Centrify Alliance Partner Program, Zoom is executing on a strategic partnership with Centrify that features joint sales initiatives, targeted marketing campaigns and technology integration. Through this partnership, Centrify for Zoom provides users with secure SSO access to Zoom’s cloud meeting service. Centrify helps ensure that access to Zoom is limited to the right set of users, while making Zoom securely and ubiquitously available across any number of approved devices without the hassle of more passwords.

Centrify’s solutions provide Unified Identity Services across data center, cloud and mobile -- resulting in one single login for users and one unified identity infrastructure for IT. Centrify’s software and cloud services let organizations securely leverage their existing identity infrastructure to centrally manage authentication, access control, privilege management, policy enforcement and compliance across on-premise and cloud resources. Using Centrify, enterprises reduce operational and helpdesk costs by centralizing account management, enabling standardization on a single set of tools and processes. Centrally managing access rights and privileges strengthens security and enforces consistent security policies across heterogeneous systems.

“Partnering with Centrify not only gives our customers control and visibility into Zoom usage, but now their users can leverage Single Sign-on and self service for mobile access to Zoom’s cloud meeting services,” said Eric Yuan, Founder & CEO of Zoom. “Centrify is already an international company, and as we expand we look forward to working with Centrify to provide a seamless experience for customers seeking to leverage their existing identities for seamless access to Zoom’s service on the mobile and computing devices of their choice.” (continued...)
